Premier League

Four managers that could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

Manchester United's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool has raised huge concern as to who will be the better fit to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Despite huge support from the Manchester United board, Solskjaer has failed to win a trophy since taking charge of the united managerial job.

United are eight(8) points adrift of Chelsea who is top of the table, and they are concerned that the gap might widen if Ole Gunnar isn't shown the exit door. Many United fans believe the Norwegian gaffer isn't at the same tactical range and know-how as arch-rivals managers like Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, and Thomas Tuchel.

Although OGS led the red to a second-place finish last week, the recent run of form has diminished fans' trust in him. Fans are calling for his sack and asking he be replaced with tested and serial achievers.

Here are possible candidates that can replace OGS if and when he s shown the exit door at Old Trafford.

Erik Ten Haag

Ajax's recent run of form is a perfect resume of how good he is as a manager. The dutchman sailed his young Ajax side to the semi-final stage of the Uefa Champions league, a fit they couldn't attain for 23 years.

Although Ten Haag has been linked with a number of top jobs in recent times, it is reported that no top European club has approached him yet. Ten Haag is well known for his attacking and possession style, a method that is expected to fit in well at Old Trafford.

Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique's incredible success with Barcelona and Spain put him in the ranks of top managers that would bring out the best from the list of talent United possess. Luis Enrique has always loud his desire to one day manage an English Premier League.

Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine expectation success with Real Madrid between 2016-2018 is the best performance of managers in the 21st century. The French gaffer led Real Madrid to three(3) consecutive UCL victories, doing with a blend of aging and growing talents.

The addition of Ronaldo and Varane was a dummy pointer that Zidane would be joining the club in the summer. However, Zizou's experience and quality are the exact types of attributes and signals needed in a Manchester United manager.

Unlike Luis Enrique and Ten Haag, Zidane is currently out of job and should be willing to move to United if all his expectations are met.

Antonio Conte

Conte is a serial winner, well known for his job well-done with Juventus, Inter, and Chelsea.

Just Like Zidane, the Italian is without a club having left Inter Milan in May. He helped Inter-Milan win their scudetto title in 11years.

Conte looks like a man to solve Manchester United’s defensive woes that have wrecked their season. Solskjaer’s men have conceded 11 goals in three games.

However, Conte’s fiery temperament and overzealousness could be a little dent in him getting the job
